I’m actually one of those persons who don’t believe in screen protectors since most screens are made to withstand scratches. But there are exemptions to some. Put a phone in a pocket with keys and coins most of the time there would be chances it would get some scratch. The same for camera screens which usually is a an object of abuse when bringing it out on travel. Cameras sometimes collide together with other items when in a pack or even out in the open when hiking or rummaging in a busy street. Either way, LCD screens gets scratched one way or another. I’ve been contemplating on getting a screen guard for my OM-D and it was timely that Expert Shield Screen Protector sent in a few samples specific to my Olympus OM-D to try out.

Application

I’m so bad when it comes to applying screen protectors. I’ve applied them before and most of the times I would get an ugly bubble on them. Well the Expert Shield was pretty straight forward with steps already on the shield itself. As much as I was careful, I had trouble with the edges, but I did manage to make the main area be bubble free. The cut was just right for my OM-D screen and touch screen still works without a problem. I can still review the photos as if there’s nothing on top of the screen. As for it’s scratch-proofness? Only wear and tear can tell as I haven’t gone to the extremes to test it. So far it’s an added peace-of-mind protection for my screen.
